As spring rolls into summer, The New York chapter continues its event activities.
In May, American Express hosted a two hour event on Credit and Pre-Paid Card Monitoring. A panel of experts from American Express and law enforcement led a discussion on methodologies of monitoring and investigating potentially suspicious activity at institutions that issue credit cards and/or acquire merchants. They addressed unique challenges in applying these methodologies to new products as consumer spending moves from paper (cash) to plastic (credit cards/prepaid cards) to bits and bytes (digital currencies/platforms). It was a successful event with over 90 participants.
On July 19th, Ernst & Young is hosting a two hour event on AML Testing: Leveraging Compliance Assurance and Independent Testing. Panelists from American Express and Royal Bank of Scotland will be leading the discussion.
Four additional events, some educational and some social/networking, are in the planning stages.
